I dunno about you but I’m sure glad that it’s friday.

Here goes…

» Build Your Own Chicago

[self explanatory(?)]
Describes itself as “a series of postcards published by Wurlington Brothers Press which can be cut and assembled into miniature paper models of prominent Chicago landmarks.” I’m sure it’s time consuming, but I like it. 🙂

» lolcthulu

In response to the previously listed LOLCats!
Insane!

» BarScribe

Pictures of random scrawlings from bars around the world.
“the monkeys are headed north!!” [found @ commonwealth (5th ave and 12th street) in brooklyn, ny]

» Multiplayer Asteroids

[self explanatory]
Ridiculously addictive and quite popular. It goes down a lot due to the heavy traffic it receives. Be patient.

Have a great weekend. And happy Friiiiday!

Is it really Friday already? Yikes!

Here are your Friday Links!

» Can This Black Box See Into the Future?

I had mentioned this story to a couple of people but not been able to find it. Well now I found it! It’s an interesting read. (And apologies for its length but I think it’s worth it.)

» Annoying Co-Worker

Some very aggressive complaints regarding the bad habits of co-workers across America. A sample:
“Stop looking at my monitor. Did I invite you to see what i’m doing?”
Sent in by Laura F.

» CookThink

Enter an ingredient, a flavor or a style, and this site will find you an exotically appropriate recipe.

» The Last Request

A Flash presentation listing the last meals of Texas death row inmates. Features haunting music by John Fahey.
Sent in by Ash

Enjoy! And have a fabulous weekend.

Holy Friday, Batman!

Here we go…

» The London Evening Standard Headline Generator

It hasn’t got quite enough randomness to be as brilliant as it sounds, but it still came up with “Bendy Crocodile Hits London: Pictures” the first time I loaded it.

» the “blog” of “unnecessary” quotation marks

[self explanatory]
[quote]PLEASE “DO NOT” HANDLE THE LOBSTERS
They are fragile[end quote]
Insane. Sent in by Jennidub.

» Escape

Lengthy, complex game where you have to figure out which things in the room need to be used, and in which order. Possibly a bit too complex…

» The Collected Works of Enrico Caruso

I know: maybe not for everybody. But it’s stuff like this that makes me love the web. Public domain 78rpm recordings of the first-ever million-selling artist. Insanely comprehensive. The collection is still ongoing.

Also features works by numerous other artists, notably Al Jolson.

Thanx again Friday List Folks.

Enjoy your weekend.

Hooray for fridayyyyyy!

Here we go…

» Ikea Hacker

Featuring some creative and unintended uses for Ikea products.
Sent in by The Stoob (who’s on a roll lately.)

» $50 Paint Job

Using nothing but 3 quarts of white rustoleum paint and a whole lotta elbow grease, this car fanatic did his own paint job for a measly $50 with impressive results. (It probably cost more since he had to buy a new buffer.)

» The Hottest Female Chess Players In The World

[self explanatory]
Based on user votes. What an odd concept.

» Xiaoxiao Police

Fun, tense, stick figure shoot-em-up. Yee haw!

I hope you have enjoyed your Friday links.

Have a great weekend.
